My cameras refused to focus on this beautiful little Cobweb Spider at Brighton, Utah because of the shaded area
I was in for most of the photos.  While I was shooting, a little boy that came along and asked me what I was doing.
He was frightened when I showed him the spider but after I told him how great spiders were he calmed down. His
 parents  were very supportive of my views.  I still hold to the idea that the cobweb spider family has some of
the most  energetic species around--always on the move.  There are over 230 species of cobweb spiders
 in North America.  © Carol Davis, 7-5-2009
